I have a LCD monitor (Connected via VGA, 15", max res 1024x768, so far from good). This monitor will not work with a specific computer (Windows XP SP3, integrated Intel graphics card of some description) when the computer is booted up. It will show the BIOS screen, then a black screen with white dots that steadily fill the screen until it displays an out of range error.
Any other monitor I have works on that PC.
Any other PC I have works with that monitor.
Furthermore, if I boot up the system with another monitor, then plug out the other monitor and insert the problem monitor while the system is in use, the problem monitor works fine.
